NAME ^

CGI::Application::Plugin::MetadataDB

SYNOPSIS ^

   use CGI::Application::Plugin::MetadataDB;
   use CGI::Application::Plugin::Feedback;
   use CGI::Application::Plugin::Session;
   
   $ENV{HTML_TEMPLATE_ROOT} = '';
   
   sub mdw_search : Runmode {
      my $self = shift;
   }

   sub mdw_search_results : Runmode {
      my $self = shift;
   }

See Medatata::DB::WUI code for example usage.

DESCRIPTION ^

Methods to aid building search to use Metadata::DB You will need to import the following plugins in your cgi app CGI::Application::Plugin::Session; CGI::Application::Plugin::Feedback;

Metadata::DB::Search makes use of a database.

CUSTOMIZING ^

the main things you want to customize are

how each record displays

   my $default = q{
   <div>
   <i><TMPL_VAR LIST_INDEX></i> 
   id <TMPL_VAR ID>
      <TMPL_VAR META_AS_UL_HTML>
   </div>
   };


   $o->mdw_result_code($default);

the main template

the connection to the database

METHODS ^

These methods are meant to aid you in creating runmodes that interact with Metadata::DB

mds_object()

mdw_per_page_limit()

mdw_process_search()

mdw_record_params()

argument is id number, returns html template params in hashref

mdw_records_loop()

argument is a list of ids, (not array ref)

returns a loop suitable for html template, uses mdw_record_params()

mdw_result_code()

perl setget method, returns result code for one object you can override this

mdw_results_loop_detailed()

mdw_search_args_submitted()

mdw_search_results_tmpl_code()

mdw_search_tmpl()

This is a setget method, opt arg is a HTML::Template object returns HTML::Template object by default we look for ENV HTML_TEMPLATE_ROOT / mdw_search.html you can provide your own template by passing to the method before run

mdw_search_results_tmpl()

this is like mdw_search_results_tmpl() by default looks for mdw_search_results.html you can pass it another template to use

mdw_search_results_tmpl_name()

setget method, default is mdw_search_results.html

mdw_search_tmpl_name()

setget method, default is mdw_search.html

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE TEMPLATES USED ^

Presently we require that the search template, generated by Metadata::DB::Search::InterfaceHTML be present on disk, if you have various of these you may want to define which to use before you run() your cgiapp

   $wui->mdw_search_tmpl_name('mdw_search.people.html');

And maybe change the output also for each record..

   $wui->mdw_search_results_tmpl_name('mdw_search_results.people.html');

   $wui->run;

Of course you can also provide template objects via mdw_search_results_tmpl() etc.
